Black English Language Professional and Friends (BELPAF), in collaboration with ACTION TESOL Caribbean invites you to participate in our symposium, “Creating and Sustaining Vibrant ELT Communities Across the Globe.” The overarching goal of our symposium is twofold. On the one hand, we aim to provide an inclusive platform for ELT professionals to showcase their creativity across global English Language teaching and learning contexts. Therefore, we encourage attendees from all cultural, linguistic, professional, and national backgrounds. On the other hand, our objective is to provide a forum for Black English language professionals and our friends worldwide to present their research, pedagogy, or materials related to social justice, race, diversity, equity, inclusion, and other matters of interest to ELT professionals, and those who teach and support Black ELs. As such, the program will feature multimodal plenary sessions and a diverse slate of dynamic presentations.Download the full program.
